This unit is a discontinued model. It is new stock that has been sitting around for a while. These systems had an inherent problem in that unless you disconnected the batteries during storage, they drained to the point where they were no longer able to be recharged again. We have tested it and everything else works fine. If you are after a great sounding portable PA system that can only run off 240v mains this is for you. If you want to go the trouble of replacing the batteries and getting a tech to add an aftermarket switch that disconnects the batteries during storage periods it may be a very worthwhile exercise. It has a proper compression driver in the top end making it sound crisp and one of the best portable PA systems we have heard. It is sold 'as is' with no warranty.
The frequencies that the wireless is on will be no good to use after the end of 2014. The volume knob plastic has also gone a bit sticky over time....
ORIGINAL PRODUCT DESCRIPTION FROM PHONIC WEBSITE
The Sound Ambassador Deluxe is a totally mobile, self-contained sound system. The unit comes packed with a 10" speaker, built-in amplifier and rechargeable batteries, and can be customized to include anti-shock CD player, MP3 player, audio cassette player/recorder and up to two wireless UHF or VHF microphones. A pull-out luggage handle and wheels make travel easy, but retract when in use to become invisible. Other important features include XLR and 1/4" microphone inputs, and a line input channel with 1/4" and mini stereo jacks, all with individual volume controls. A Line Out channel with 1/4" phone and 1/8" mini stereo jacks enables two Sound Ambassadors to be linked together, as well as the effortless addition of external digital recording devices. Additional speakers can be added to share the power from the amplifier, or the built-in speaker can be turned off and power routed to external speakers. The unit is topped off with a 2-band system EQ, master volume control, built-in limiter, protection circuitry and tripod stand mount. All of these features combine to make the Sound Ambassador Deluxe a must-have for traveling presenters, small conferences, schools, classrooms, touring bands, clubs and karaoke.
